Remote working with Sneek

June 22nd, 2016

Written by:

Sneek is the brand new application from the guys at Analog Republic. If you work remotely, it’s as close to a real office as you can get. It’s like looking at your team mates across the room and walking up to their desk for a chat, and they can still tell you to go away if they’re eating a chocolate croissant.

Wall of faces

See all your team mate’s pretty faces on one screen as Sneek takes your photo at a regular interval (which you control). Yes, we all pick our noses, there’s no shame.

Instant video

Click on your team mates lovely face to start an instant video chat, no waiting. Click on your own face to hang up.

Group video

Click on additional faces to add others for a group chat. Click on your own face to leave the group. The others remain chatting and will probably talk behind your back, don’t take it personally. You can chat with up to 12 people at once.

Availability

Set your status to busy when you’re on a call or on the toilet.

Slack integration

Sign in with Slack and start video chats direct from any Slack channel with “/sneek”.

High performance infrastructure

The team behind Sneek is very experienced in building highly scalable infrastructures. We’re daily Sneek users ourselves, so we want the best performance we can achieve and promise you’ll be impressed with call quality and application performance.

This is of course assuming you aren’t on dial up or in a hipster coffee shop sharing a 2Mb connection with 40 other bearded men. Then we can’t help you.
